So you dont have anything on them? I dont think the "heatsink" comes close enough to make direct contact with the ram.

I think they just put gum they happen to be chewing on at the time in it, screw the things on and SHIP EM OUTTTTTTTTTTTTTT! Glad to know at least some people care about their cards...I love putting good thermal paste on my cards. Make sure when you screw it back on, you alternate sides, so the pressure on the GPU spreads the paste as evenly as possible

I had a heck of a time taking the Heatsink off my EVGA 8800 GTX as well. It was covered with goop, The dang heatpads all ripped and gummed up as well.

Is the H-03 the only good after market solution? I left the pads because the thermal paste wouldn't fill in the gap to the heatsink.

I really heaped up the AS5 on the core, because after seating the heatsink and lifting it again, it did not have full contact.

I wouldn't mind hearing about aftermarkey solutions, I can't believe how hot this thing gets compared to my 260, or how loud it can get.

I have been looking at this..

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835118038

looks like it might screw straight to the card instead of using thermal epoxy or anything like that.
